WIMCO CORP RANKS AMONG HIGHEST-SCORING BUSINESSES ON
INC. MAGAZINE’S ANNUAL LIST OF BEST WORKPLACES FOR 2021
WASHINGTON, NC (May 12, 2021) – WIMCO Corp has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual list of the Best Workplaces for 2021. Hitting newsstands May 18 in the May/June 2021 issue, and as part of a prominent Inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of American companies that have created exceptional workplaces and company culture whether teams are operating in person or remotely.
Collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. singled out 429 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Quantum Workplace, on topics including management effectiveness, perks, and fostering employee growth. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the company’s overall score and ranking.
“Making Inc’s list for “Best Workplaces of 2021” simply means that we have treated our people right. Our core focus is and will always be valuing our people as people first and employees second, and taking care of our people at any cost. When our employees walk in the door to the family atmosphere that exists here, they succeed because they want to, for the family.” Says Kevin D. Rawls, CEO and President of WIMCO Corp
“The definition of a positive workplace has changed drastically over the past year,” says Inc. magazine editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Stocked fridges and nap pods were no longer perks many companies could rely on once work went remote. So, this year’s list is even more important as it reveals organizations that continue to enrich the lives of its employees amid a pandemic.”
